In this series of lessons we will explore various fingerstyle blues guitar styles and techniques. This first lesson focuses on the Key of C. We will delve in to the alternating as well as monotonic bass techniques; blues slides, hammer-ons and pull-offs and blues slurred notes. The playing techniques of Mississippi John Hurt, Rev. Gary Davis and Blind Blake are discussed. But more importantly the aim of this lesson is to give you a freedom to improvise playing a blues. The lesson finishes with Blues in C which brings together the many ideas and styles that have been taught. As a bonus feature, audio tracks are included featuring rare recordings of the songs and styles presented. Each tune is taught phrase by phrase and played slowly on a split-screen. A detailed tab/music booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD. This includes lyrics to the songs as well as tab/music transcriptions of the guitar playing. NTSC all region, 85 minutes.
